Sew and Tell Friday #4 … Wrapped In Hope


A few months ago, I posted here about Margaret's Hope Chest and their Wrapped In Hope project.  After finishing my first WIH quilt, I signed up to make quilts for twins, who will be 11 in a couple weeks.

DSC01340DSC01342 I made this quilt for the little boy.  It measures 44” x 67”, and the main fabric has vintage hot rods, which I used for the 8” squares on the front.  I also used it for the backing and the binding.  I finished it today, label and all … so it’s ready to go!

There are still children available who will be celebrating birthdays throughout the year.  If you are interested in volunteering to make a quilt, visit Carin’s blog Margaret's Hope Chest for more information.
